Welcome here! :D
That's something a bit different but I like it. I thought possibly the silver comstars or spokes rims might fit better but one should try out with photoshop first. No kickstarter, did you hide the battery in the tail?

Thanks!

I would rather have some spoke wheels...I can probably get some mid-70's CB750 wheels to work.

Yes. I fabbed up a battery holder and welded it to the rear of the frame to reside under the seat hump.
